    @Arch - Piccolo, Black and White One Piece, and Angel are a must.

    @Lucifus - Edward and Hei/Yin ones look great. The others look a bit strange due to the combined art styles.

    Spunky.

    I agree with Shinta on that one, when you combine renders from different sources you should make sure the art styles match at least a little

    That or use your own style to make the whole thing more homogeneous

    Everyone else looks out of place. C.C. belongs anywhere.

    Kidding aside, combining that many characters from different shows with different art styles is indeed a challenge. I think the best way to go is to find similar poses viewed from the same angle. That should make it look less artificial.

    Spunky.

    I love that banner!

    I humbly request a Michiko (from Michiko to Hatchin) and a Roy Mustang banner please.

    The background isn't salvageable but the render isn't bad, seems oversharpened though

    I'm letting this one stand for now, but Whitebeard deserves something more epic. I'll keep messing with this render.

    Whitebeard

    Edit: O, and I'll get on those if no one else pick em up Saph.

    It's not bad, but i agree Badass incarnate deserves something a little better

    Wanna try using this in the background?

    Both the theme and the art style match the render, it's the one i was gonna use.

    The Rei render looks awesome. So much can be done with that because it fits the banner format perfectly.

    The only thing I don't like with the Whitebeard one are the fonts. They look a bit rough and playful in comparison to the overall banner feeling.

    Spunky.

    Luci beat me to a Yin banner, but I guess I can still throw mine in.

    Yin

    I'm still debating about the scanlines...

    Can you guys slap Rizon on the banners as well w/ irc.gotwoot.net? Otherwise people who come for the fansub group would go to the wrong server.

    Edit: Sorry, I'm only referring to the banners you want to advertise IRC on, not all banners.

    I'd second both the suggestions about art style mismatches and Sapphire's suggestions about irc channels... either both networks or no networks ... since apparently we've got like 12 "official" irc channels now.

    But yeesh, you folks are prolific >_<.

    Another ground rule: could you prefix your filename with your nick, to make my life a little easier?

    Anyway, while the theme is a work in progress and I'm still trying to resolve a couple issues and get the blue-ish default icons replaced with more theme-appropriate ones, you can see how the images integrate with the theme on http://devforums.gotwoot.net/forum.php, which may help your design process a bit...

    As requested. By the way, can we standardize the border?

    I uploaded the template for mine, unless you all have something else in mind.

    Mediafire - Border Template

    Banners:

    Orochimaru

    Saber (Remake of the Saber and Rin Banner)

    Edward Elric

    Ichigo

    Yin and Hei

    Whitebeard

    Rei

    Sephiroth

    Gotwoot Girls

    Pain and Konan

    Edit: Love the colors on that Yin banner Alhuin. =)

    Sorry, I didn't mean to mean that you have to advertise IRC on every banner. You don't have to advertise the IRC servers at all on any of them. Only if you want to of course. With most of these banners, the awesome art just speaks for itself and doesn't need an advertisement plastered on it.

    In fact, you can just leave everything off that Orochimaru banner... *runs away*

    Edit 3: A third... and I made a tiny adjustment to the Yin banner above...

    @Lucifus, The Pain and Konan seems off. Konan's face is rendered so differently from Nagato.

    Thanks shinta|hikari for the sig.

    Alhuin! The Angel one! How angelic!~ =D

    Nicely done!

    @oyabun, I realized, I should probably just redo it, and split the banner into two with seperate renders.
